FPB Assistant General Manager of Cable-Telecom John Higginbotham expects this service will be well received by customers. “College or pro, fans can’t get enough action. Now with the WatchESPN, FPB Cable customers don’t have to miss a touchdown, home run or big play.” Higginbotham says this is a further example of FPB providing what the customer wants. “Our customers have been very vocal, letting us know which services they want. We have listened and worked very hard to provide these kinds of opportunities. With the recent additions of FOX Sports Ohio and the SEC Network to our Classic Cable lineup, offering over 40 networks on the WatchTVEverywhere platform and now WatchESPN, FPB continues its mission to provide the best options available.”
